The rear pair I believe. But it was hinted at earlier.

Do you run uptravel limit on your rig? (the screws are there on mine, but backed out to the point of being useless) Or just sway bars?

it all depend on the track barrier and traction

if the track have a wooden barrier or CRC barrier (walls) and have good amount of traction then I limit 1mm-2mm of uptravle.if track use road dome or cement zebra as barrier/ low grip then I just removed those screws.

I suggest you to always use those screws. At the Euro I used a lot of ground clearance (3mm above ride height) but usually I run it around 2mm. Less droop gives usually more corner speed as the car takes less roll. Droop is a good way to set the way the car rotates around corners (rear droop) and the way it will exit (front droop).

hey Lucas

he s asking about up travle limiter screws, one that on inside pivot of arms. I dont think you had that on your car at ETC, did you?

also can you clearfy rear pivot degrees? 1 deg block as pictured right?

Exactly, the ones inside the pivot located on the extension that the sway bar snaps onto.

Do these flex mods add rear traction? My type-r was good in 17.5 with the exceptions of quick transitions and getting on power the rear end would to come around, otherwise the car was a bit pushy. The car had excellent highspeed steering.

yes, even on 13.5 I had a traction and half. my car actually had too much steering I had Paul Leumix worked on my car to get rid of some initial steering.

happend to be too much FR camber and diff being too tight.

try that mod for ashpalt you'll like it

OMG ! I'm sorry I badly understood :s
For my defence I'll say that I'm french -__-'

No I've never used those screws (because I've never tried).

Yes you are right, I used a 1deg block at the euro and 0deg hub, so 2deg rear toe.

Mike : I basicly did the flex modification to get more steering. In fact it gave me more stability at corner entry, more mid corner steering, more overall grip and a little bit less corner speed. It's usually faster like this (up to 2/10 a lap).
